Toshiko Akiyoshi Trio at the Kennedy Center

Mar 27, 2010 07:30 PM - 09:30 PM

Renowned for her bebop mastery and for infusing traditional Japanese music into bold, original arrangements, Toshiko Akiyoshi is a pianist, composer, and bandleader with "unmistakable lyrical gifts" (The New Yorker). A 2007 NEA Jazz Master, Kennedy Center Living Jazz Legend, and Mary Lou Williams Women in Jazz Award recipient, the multiple Grammy nominee continues to be a driving force in the jazz world, touring and recording to great critical praise. Last seen at the Center in 2006, Akiyoshi performs two intimate concerts with her trio in her KC Jazz Club debut on the opening day of the National Cherry Blossom Festival.

Toshiko Akiyoshi will give two performances on the evening of March 27, 2010 at 7:30 and 9:30. Tickets go on sale to the public on December 9, 2009. Ticket purchasing options and complete concert information are available on the Kennedy Center website.
